DALLAS _ Fresh off one of their best quarters Monday at Oklahoma City, the Dallas Mavericks had one of the worst quarters of the season Tuesday against Toronto at American Airlines Center.
Playing without the injured Dirk Nowitzki, the Mavs made only 4 of 20 baskets (20 percent), committed seven trunovers and fell behind the Raptors at the end of the first period, 23-13. The 13 points ties for the fewest points the Mavs have scored in any quarter this season.
In the 103-93 win over the Thunder on Monday, the Mavs outscored Oklahoma City 24-12 in the fourth period.
